Okay, I know it’s been a minute since the TLC biopic was shown on VH1 over in the US, but I’ve only just got this blog back after having it redesigned, so forgive me for being a little *ahem* late!
But back to film, I didn’t allow myself to engage that deeply with any of the information leading up to its release. I wasn’t sure how I felt about the casting for one. Maybe, as a massive fan of the group, I couldn’t imagine anyone else playing the T-Boz, Left Eye and Chilli aside from the girls themselves.
But once the film came out, of course I had to watch it. To be honest, it wasn’t that bad… For a TV movie. There weren’t a lot of things I didn’t know that ended up in the movie, but it was nice to see everything being pieced together in a movie, and the acting wasn’t that bad. Lil’ Mama surprised everybody, and actually had the standout performance of the film, as Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes.
